Two pitches: F7a+ (7b+ direct), F7b.
Start at a belay below the left edge of the largest ceiling.

P1. Climb a huge flake to a ledge. Work up leftwards through bulges to a break. Step left for a rest, then move up to a small pillar. From the top of the pillar traverse right to the belay. The direct climbs straight up to the belay from the break.

P2. Follow the groove above to the top.

Ticklists: Littlejohn South West Climbs, West Country Climbs, Classic UK F7s, Cheddar Road To 7a Ruins.

Supposed to be alternating lead, but ran out of go on my lead of the second pitch.

Wise 22/Jun/15 Lead dog

Rested on P1, then red pointed P2. Quality climbing in an epic position. Not too hard, plenty of bolts but still feels exposed. A Cheddar must do.

Linked into one mega pitch, a few extenders, a lot of doubled up QD's and a bit of reversing to take draws out and surprisingly the drag wasn't too bad.

DorsetGareth 07/Jun/15 AltLd dog

Lead first pitch, but failed at the crux - had spend a bit of time working it out. Top roped the second pitch clean.

Pitch 2- not sure if was climbing or falling upwards

Let P2. Brill! Tho hard with numb hands & feet. It was freezing - def should have taken the clue from name of the crag and startred a couple of hours later.

O/s the 7a+ pitch I led. Misread the sequence going through the roof on the groove pitch, slipped there.

James Marshall 15/Apr/15 Lead RP

Climbed as one long pitch but got awful rope drag, 2nd go extended the 2 clips at the top of first pitch with 4' slings. Probably best to do the 7b+ first pitch if you are going to do it as a mega route ! Anyway, beautiful sunny evening on sunset buttress - unbeatable

Great position with some good varied climbing.1st pitch juggy and pumpy, 2nd tenuous bridging. Led both pitches, 1st onsight,2nd flashed but only just!

flashpanther 01/Jul/14 AltLd dog

managed to lead the 7a+ clean, but cheated shameless up the second pitch to the top.

7a+ pitch first redpoint. Pumpy and exposed! Fantastic moves but with some loose rock as you traverse above that roof.

L1 & L2 in one pitch. Desert island route. Mind blowing. Did the direct by accident, 7b not 7b+.

Mike Goldthorp 13/May/13 AltLd O/S

Stunning climb, the most adventurous-feeling bolt clipping I've ever done! Hard crux on the first pitch, only just managed it on second, and then lead the GLORIOUS groove pitch at the top which felt OK, getting used to the exposure and all that I guess. A must-do Cheddar (and British) classic!

just the 7a+ pitch (first hard OS) then into Bird of paradise to work.

Ged Desforges ??/2009 -

another one amazing as a long pitch, linking both pitches (doing the dirtect on p1). 7b? not sure the first pitch is worth a plus, easier than p1 of bird of paradise.
